    Default getting a new computer

    well after deciding that ibuypowers site charges WAY TOO much for shipping i decided to go the easy road and just buy a pre built computer threw newegg.

    my grandmother is buying it for me, and i love her for it. BUTTTTTT i had a limit so i had to stay in the 500 range, i plan on upgrading in the future so i put apus out of the equation. after looking at several reviews and comparing specs i decided on this for the price and lack of issues. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...FcOe4AodAygANA

    it isnt the greatest but i do not do any heavy gaming (outside of batman and arma 2) so it fits my needs.

    it also is roomy and has decent cooling which is a plus.

    Also im holding off on ordering it incase i find something better but if anyone has suggestions im happy to recieve them

    Not a super good gpu, but that should work fine for what you plan on doing. Also it has an ide which is really kind of out of date now. If you do plan on updating you have to keep in mind of that ide connection. Also a higher watt power supply will do you well in the future. Not bad for the budget though and not bad if you plan on updating later.

    Why would you ever buy ibuypower, much less a prebuilt PC?

    Also cool $45 graphics card in a 'gaming' PC...

    caught me too it, and i understand the gpu is trash but its better than what i have now (pre 2007 256 mb hd radeon 2700) plus i plan to upgrade in the future.

    as i said i dont claim to be an expert when it comes to this so help finding a better pc for the same price or around it would help greatly

    All you have to do is pick a case

    That is only 400 bucks it can run crisis 3 on medium. still looking epic. i gave you a 400 buck build because like this you can upgrade anything you want. and i would pick this case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119233

    since you want to upgrade i would get a better cpu and gpu

    The processor is solid (I had a 4100), and you can upgrade the GPU in the future. The power supply is a really low wattage; 300w won't get you far, you'll need to upgrade that if you want a better GPU.

    as much as i appreciate the help i forgot to add, as stupid as it sounds my grandmother refuses to allow me to build it. There is more too it than that but im restricted to a prebuilt and i respect that since she is buying it. unless you can find a better prebuilt choice from a respected seller it wont do me any good

    as much as i agree, this is my grandmothers request and i respect it. i made her aware of the advantages of building it and she declined.

    Im not going to argue with her on this, i believe in respecting my elders
